The sermon urges us to accept the mystery at the heart of our faith. While changes have come to people, the community, and practices of living, we still face the same needs as did the early Christians. People are found on streets, working in fields or businesses and having to adapt to different traveling modes. The end finds the need for community spirit scattered and fulfilled their living needs.
At the center of the activity remains the church with its contacts, making it succeed by hard work, and providing for our family and friends. God lives in all communities among his believers as they carry forth the message of love and faith. The solution to all problems lies in the Trinity wherein instead of causing anxiety, anger and tears, we should live with out making accusations that hurt the fabric of who we really are. The answers we seek lie here in the church and the community and living peacefully together. We are God’s witness to theworld by our actions.
